Three Things that Happened in March

Violets purpled the stunted grass

under the last wintering sun, and

 

a greening verve stirred and yawned

perfumed lilac zephyrs.

 

Amid the bustle of bloom and sprout

the April suicides made their lists

 

and wrote in their letters the reasons why

spring wasn’t enough.
